TORONTO -- The New Orleans Pelicans have responded to a six-game losing streak with two consecutive home wins and Monday night they will learn just how far they have come back when they visit the surging Toronto Raptors.
While the Pelicans (6-6) were defeating the Phoenix Suns 119-99 Saturday, the Raptors (12-1) won their sixth in a row, 128-112 over the New York Knicks and are undefeated in seven home games this season.
The Pelicans improved to 5-1 at home after the win over the Suns but are 1-5 on the road. After playing Monday in Toronto, they will visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. It made the win against Phoenix important for the team's frame of mind.
